Resilience and the Big Picture: Governing and Financing Innovation for Long Island Sound and Beyond

Presented by UConn's Center for Energy & Environmental Law, Connecticut Sea Grant, and National Sea Grant Law Center.

Please join elected officials, policymakers, industry executives and academics as they navigate a path toward our resilient future. This symposium will focus on both the complexities of shared governance of Long Island Sound and the utilization of the tools of insurance and finance to achieve resilience in a changing climate.

This symposium will include two policy discussions. "Achieving Resilience Through Insurance and Finance" will focus on creating our resilient future through financial mechanisms, and “Big Picture Planning in Long Island Sound and Beyond” will focus on marine spatial planning efforts and resilience at sea.

Speakers will include: Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal, Commissioner Robert Klee (Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection), Commissioner Katharine Wade (Connecticut Insurance Department), North Regional Director Betsy Nicholson (NOAA OCM), Rhode Island Superintendent of Insurance Elizabeth Kelleher Dwyer, Brian Farnen (Connecticut Green Bank), Executive Director Grover Fugate (Rhode Island CRMC), and others.
